With fears of COVID-19 spreading across the country, we wanted to share some easy and important reminders to keep your immune system healthy in addition to the recommendations given by health authorities. Our founder Jana also shares her homemade hand sanitizer recipe if it's become scarce where you are, or if you'd prefer a more natural formula. Stay safe everyone, much love from Captain Blankenship!

All Natural Hand Sanitizer⁠ 

⁠Yield:8oz⁠ ⁠
2/3 cup 190 proof alcohol or isopropyl alcohol*⁠
1/3 cup aloe vera gel⁠
15 drops peppermint essential oil⁠
15 drops cinnamon essential oil⁠
15 drops thyme essential oil⁠
30 drops lemon essential oil⁠
5 drops clove essential oil⁠
Mix ingredients together in measuring cup or small bowl. Pour into spray bottles with fine mist sprayer. Spray on hands and surfaces to sanitize.⁠ ⁠

A Note from Jana: ⁠
*I have a lot of organic sugar cane alcohol I use for tinctures and perfumes so I am using that, but you can also use Everclear. ⁠ ⁠ -you do not need to use this exact blend of essential oils. You could just use lemon and cinnamon or peppermint and thyme or a mix. Tea tree essential oil and eucalyptus are also good in this blend.
